    Great looking design. Let me know if the package of goodies made it to ya yet. I added a few extra pieces of damascus, and Im thinking you may want to use some of it for a butt cap. and, or even in place of the Koa. Whatever you do this one is gona be a winner!

    Hand sanded to 600 grit and going out to attach a tang and get this baby etched! Hopefully the handle materials will be here tomorrow! If they are, i suspect by the weekend, we might see this thing finished! I still need to get a stock of stones....I can only go to 1000 and a buff...still pops hair, but NOTHING like what i watched Salty do....scary!


    Also i will do some measurements before i etch it...I have a few spots i want to clean up first....

    Looks great, love the heel shape and nice natural pattern. A forged ladder pattern? or did you cut the fullers?

    Ok changing this a bit.Was going to use damascus for the spine, The pieces i got were about 3/4 of an inch short, so i am back to some wicked ass Koa. I am also thinking about using Koa for the ferrule and buttcap. Still going to use damascus for the spacers and the copper....But i am thinking of Koa...Just would flow better than Blackwood i think...What do you guys think? Here is the Koa

    And a better shot of the Musk Ox horn


    Any thoughts?
